Oh gosh, a goshawk!

Oh gosh, a goshawk!
I was walking on a pathway at the waterfront on a frosty morning, studying reason and rime (on the frozen horsetail) when something up above caught my eye. I glanced up and saw this fella sitting in front and above me about twenty meters away. I turned my back to him, picked up the camera from the shoulder bag, slowly turned back and managed to take a few shots before he took wing.

Hawk was ringed, with a white spot on her forehead. I've seen a goshawk a few times in the wild, but never this close. I guess it is for situations like this why I carry camera with me all the time. :-)

Daniel Palacin, Sami Serola have particularly liked this photo
